Safety Ideas for a Small Creek Near the House

Good Questions

Q: Given the ingenuity of Ohdeedoh readers, I thought I would put out a question. We recently bought a house with a small (about four feet wide) creek [not pictured] that gets mountain run off. Any tips/suggestions on how to make it safe for two kids under the age of two?

Editor: Anyone else have a similar set-up on your property? What ideas do you have for Robin?
